Marmite on Toast - a Veritable British Classic!

Total Time
Prep 0 mins

I cannot believe there is no "recipe" for marmite on toast here! Okay, maybe calling it a recipe is stretching it a bit far, but it is a British breakfast classic, and if you LOVE marmite, you will love marmite on hot buttered toast! Use a nice nutty, granary bread and a cheeky little butter for the prefect Marmite in Toast extravaganza! Make a perfect pot of tea, The Perfect Pot and Cup of English Tea!, for the perfect accompaniment and away you go, you’ll be saying "Cor blimey Guv'ner" in no time!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slice granary bread or 2 slice bread, of your choice
  • fresh unsalted butter
  • marmite, to taste


  1. Toast the bread slices to desired colour, I like mine well toasted.
  2. Butter whilst still hot, making sure it all melts into the toasted bread.
  3. Spread with marmite to taste, cut into triangles or fingers and enjoy with a cuppa tea!

Marmite is very strong-flavoured and salty and I just scrape it onto the toast. Having said that, this was a great treat at breakfast today - and one I hadn't had in years. Thanks!
